Opening meeting of the Berwickshire Hunt

This week’s photo from the Berwickshire News archives was taken back in November 1965, and shows one of the fixtures of the rural sporting calendar, the opening meet of that year for members of the Berwickshire Hunt.

That November day’s meet for the Berwickshire Hunt started at Manderston, which was then the home of Hunt President, Major CWH Bailie.

Master of the Hunt at the time that the photo was taken was Major d’A. Horne, of Lennel.
